The report that you receive from the roofer should detail all the information and more. It should list current or possible risks as well as what possible future risks you could be undergoing (This could be anything from an old tree near the roof [Branch Risk, Potential falling])

Always ask to get a report in writing so that you can clear yourself of liability, the roofer will undoubtedly keep one for their records as well.
